Excellent meal

Love this dish! Generous portion size, good amount of chicken, lovely caramelized onions and soft rice.

Rating: 2 star out of 5

not the best by any means!

Over sold and over rated! Not much chicken for the price and over priced. Not up to Waitrose usual standard. I must have had a duff one!

Rating: 5 star out of 5


I have just had this biryani, a touch hot for me, but I added some Korma sauce, mango chutney and some naan bread. delicious! I couldn't believe the amount of chicken, at least one piece every mouthful! 5 stars

Best microwave meal ever

This is so tasty, my husband has it every night that I am not able to cook. 3 times a week. The meal is moist, tasty, succulent and flavoursome. Ready in no time. 5 stars

Rating: 4 star out of 5

I was impressed

It is a ready meal after all and a very filling tasty one at that. More than enough chicken and aromatic non greasy rice. Nothing wrong with this and I will buy again.
